The global mobile edge computing (MEC) market size reached US$ 642.2 Million in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 2,771.9 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 26.4% during 2023-2028.
Mobile edge computing (MEC) is an emerging technology that aims to move infrastructure-based cloud resources, such as computation, storage, and bandwidth, to the edge of the cellular network. It establishes the network edge by utilizing various access points, such as routers, switches, hotspots, WiFi, servers, and controllers. MEC is widely used in location-based services, video surveillance, unified communication, data analytics, and environmental monitoring. It distributes computing resources across the network, provides more scalable performance, reduces network load, and hastens data transmission. It also reduces network congestion and latency and improves device performance. As a result, MEC finds extensive applications across the retail, telecommunications, energy, and healthcare industries.
Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) Market Trends:
Significant growth in the telecommunications industry across the globe is creating a positive outlook for the market. MEC enables telecommunication businesses to lessen their reliance on the cloud and assist in processing large volumes of data generated by devices. In line with this, the widespread technology adoption in various industrial verticals to improve quality of experience (QoE), provide low latency computing, and enhance operational efficiency is favoring the market growth. Furthermore, the growing need to manage enormous data traffic due to the rapid proliferation of smartphones and interconnected devices is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Additionally, the rising MEC utilization in emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), and federated learning (FL) to reduce power consumption, improve response time, and enhance performance by offering higher bandwidth is providing an impetus to market growth. The increasing demand for the solution can also be attributed to the rising need to facilitate the expansion of fifth-generation (5G) technology by enabling automation and scalability, providing privacy and security, and ensuring significant cost savings. Other factors, including extensive research and development (R&D) activities towards developing new hardware, and emerging product applications in augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), are anticipated to drive the market growth.
